Connecticut residents have until today, Tuesday, Oct. 26, to register to vote in advance of Election Day.
Although Connecticut does have same-day Election Day registration, residents are encouraged to register in advance to avoid long lines that may form on Election Day.
“Tuesday is the last day to register before Election Day. Every Connecticut voter must and will have the opportunity to cast their ballots safely and securely,” said Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill in a news release last week.
Municipal elections will be held in Connecticut on Nov. 2.
